C, SATURDAY,   HARCM 14, 1903.  $1jOO a ye_r  nv  mie _nRi rmu_  Only a Few Attended to  Hear Proposition Laid  Before th_ Municipal  Council  A meeting was called on Thursday evening in tbe town hall to  consider the feasibility of establishing a system of water supply to the  inhabitants of Ladner and the rest  of the municipality Where practicable.  We regret that the meeting was  very poorly attended and nothing  was done by those present other  than informally talking the matter  over.  There is no doubt that a thoroughly good system of supplying  this municipality with drinking  water would be aA everlasting benefit to the commuroity, especially in  the summer, when the weather is  warm and the tank water Js _pt _o  give out for lack "of r_i_-. But it  would have to be 'a system which  Would not make the rate so high as  to be practically prohibitive to the  householder and farmer.  Under the municipal cla_.es 'ad,  the municipality are entitled to take  any number of shares in a water  Works com pany to supply water to  the residents of _uy municipality.  Before even th_t can be done it is  necessary to have the by-law ratified by tbe electors, which is always  doubtful when such a proceeding  would be likely to raise the present  taxes and would not benefit all and'  everybody in the Municipality.       i  We think that considering everything that if a company could be  formed to put in a Sy stem of water  works and make the chaTges for  water anyway reasonable, there is  ao doubt that every one would be  prepared to take the water, if the  company were able to give the peo-  ble a better service than the existing one and they would make good  interest ou the investment. It is  altogether too large a proposition  for the municipality to tackle and  Would De very much better managed by a company who would be  able to do tha ' work at a much  cheaper rate than if the scheme  Was run by the council.       . ,,-.'■  Keary, was in attendance, and occupied a seat on the left of the  grand master.  The supreme master workman,  Representative Bro. G. W. Race, i  of Tacoma, addressed the bretbern  in a few well chosen words, dwelling particularly on the great advantages offered b)' the order, especially to those having a wife and  family. Coming to plain financial  statements, the order has disbursed  since its inception upwards of $125,-  000,000, and now possesses over  450,000 members. Their motto  should be "Onward and upward,"  and a. _Tt t_e provincial cities, Vancouver, Victoria, _nd New Westminster, were all good fields for increasing the membership, he hoped  advantage would be taken of the  opportunity to do good work in  these centres. Upon the cond_-  sioh of Bro. Race's speech, the _-.  M. W.s Bro. F.W. Welsh, delivered  his arfnual address.  The various matters that had  been referred to the committee on  the good of the -order were duly  adopted.  The matter of establishing an  official organ was gone into most  carefully, and resulted in the question being turned down for the  present, although it is conceded  that within a short time such a st<ep  must be undertaken.  The committee on laws repotted  on the various alterations suggested,  the most important question being  that of bi-annual sessions. On  this drastrcj legislation a vote was  _ke_ _. which was that bi-annual  _ess___ wSt be in order hereafter,  ■Or just 'is sb-tt as the law is agreed  to by tbe Supreme Master Workman. The result of this action  will be the saving of several hundred dollars „ year.  The following officer* were elected ; PMG,.W Welsh; M W,  H Edwards; foreman, H T Devine;  overseer, A Gilchrist; recorder, J I  Mcllmoyl; receiver, RT Williams;  guide, W H Smith. Tha business  ofthe lodge over, it was adjournrd.  Thursday evening the members  and visitors were entertained by  Fraser Lodge to a supper at the  Colonial hotel.  The Boundary Bay public school  will open on Monday morning.  Mr. Cunningham, of We»tmi__er,  will be the teacher. The opening  of this school will be a great help  to families living in that section,  children who attend school having  heretofore come to the other schools  in Ladner.  The Amendment to the  Liquor License By-Law  Passed the First Reading.    Gravel Tenders.  matte: submitted to a meeting of  the rate payers which was called on  Thursday evening.  The council then adjourned  till  Saturday, March 28th.  POLITICS IN ONTARIO.  GRAND LODGE A. 0. U. W.  The twelfth session of the Grand  Lodge, A. O. U.

A communication was read from  Messrs. Howay and Reid re arrears  of taxes on lot 471 G. 2. On motion the communication was received and the clerk instructed to  reply.  A petition was read from Mary  G. Taylor, Annie McNeely, -Mark  Rofins, and Robert Smith asking  that the gazetted road through sections 22 and 15, township 5, be declared open. On motion the request of the petition was granted.  The Re.*, and Councilors Ladner,  McCallan and Burr were appointed  a committee to examine ,g__tted  roadway through lot J49, G. _-, and  report next meeting. The liquor  license amendment by-law passed  the first reading.  On motion ithe tenders for gravel  were opened. The tenders were  Mitchel Bros., $1.00 per yard; V.  Martinolich 80 cents, and Acker-  man and Noble 98 cents. On motion V. Martinolich's tender of 80  cents was accepted.

Holmes, gravelling Holmes road,  $34.50, M. Smith, nails,   sundries,  $26.10  F. A. Shand, representing the  Washington Pipe and Foundry  Company, of Tacoma, was present  and discussed the proposition of  a water system for the Delta municipality. He stated that his company could supply wooden pipes of  6 and 8 inches, of a durability that  would last for years, as has been  demonstrated by mining companies  in the province. If the counc il did  not see their way clear to put in a  system themselves, his company  would do so providing that the  council woul d make a vote of $250  for a plan of the municipality to be  made by a competent engineer,  after inspection showing where the  water could best be brought from,  whether from wells, by tapping the  Coquitlam, or by pumping from  the Fraser from some spot where  the water is not contaminated, necessitating the establishment also of  a filtering plant.  The council were all in favor of  •a water works system but thought  it would be advisable to have the  Toronto, March 11.—In the  House, after 5 this evening, R. R.  Gam./, M. P., Manoutin, got up  and stated that he had received  $3,0.0 from Hon. Mr. Straton to  support the government. Mr.  Straton showed him a bulky envelope, which Capt. Sullivan opened,  containing $3,000. Gamey got  half. He was to get $4,000 more  if he continued a government supporter. The announcement caused  a big sensation.  Premier Ross stated that the  whole story was a surprise to him,  and that an investigation would be  held immediately, and the whole  matter referred to the Privileges  and Elections Committee.  The house then adjourned.  1  ____  since losing his wife last October, •  and   at   last   succumed   to   grip.  The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon.  ODDFELLOW'S BALL.  Held Last Evening was an  Enjoyable Affair.  The gaities of the season were  further increased this week by the  .sixth annual ball of Delta Lodge,  No. 21, of the Independent Order  of Oddfellows, held in the town  hall here on the evening of the  13th. A large and enthusiastic as-  seml\ .*e of guests responded to the  committee's invititation to be present at the ball, upwards of forty  couples being .present, and aided by  excellent music, the Oddfellows and  their guests entered into and enjoyed a charming re-union in the,  nicely decorated room. The program consisted of the usual number of dances carefully selected to  suit all the dancers, and after the  first part bad been filled the dancers  adjourned to W. H. Smith's and  sat down to an excellent supper,  the gastronomic pleasures of the  guests were catere. to in equally  as enjoyable manner as that of the  terpsichorean program.  The hall was gaily decorated  throughout with evergreens and  tissue paper and presented a very  pretty appearance. The materials  were 'artistically arranged around  the walls and from the centre ofthe  ceiling hung pretty streamers.  The three large links and other insignia of the order were to be seen  on the walls ofthe room.  The floor was in charge of Thos.  Patterson, who performed bis duties with urbanity and success.  The music was furnished by Har-  pur's orchestra, Vancouver. The  committee of F. J. MacKenzie, W.  A. Kirkland and A. Parmiter, and  the members of the order, must be  given great praise for the successful termination of their unwearying  efforts.  TRACK LAYING.

The radius  defined in the act was questioned  and the clerk, not being able to say  definitely the number of 'residents  and property holders ih the Radius,  proceedings were delayed.

He was a member of the first municipal council of Westminster, and  kept a large store. Some years  subsequently, with the late H. V.  Edmonds, he embarked in an extensive real estate transaction and  became one of the original syndicate to start what is now the B. 0.  Electric Railway Company.

'The provincial legislature is  advertised to meet April  2nd.    It is  not likely that it will be postponed  again, but one can never tell what  will happen in the province.    The  ]?rior ministry  had a caucus, of its  following last weet and it has been  announced   that   the   government  will have a majority of two at the  coming session.    Premier Prior does  not intend, according to reports, to  be dictated to by Joseph Martin,  who it is claimed will have the balance of power.    British  Columbia  has tried running its affairs by governments   of  all   kinds of parties.  Why not  give party lines a trial  now?   Of course both  parties are  badly broicen up,  as there are so  many heaven born leaders that each  one wants to be the big  Indian of  the party  and  if not   so, will not  support the party.    Party lines can  not be worse than the present state  of affairs so by all means  give it a  trial.    It is claimed by the  opposi  tion that the government cannot  have a majority at the  meeting of  the house, and many are in favor  of supporting  the government, so  as to pass the estimates and non  contentious legislation and then go  to   country   on   party lines.    We  Relieve this would be the best way  but of tbe difficulty.  The fine weather was put out  of business this week by a heavy  fall of-snow.

The number of the old-time politi  clan? who are sending- in applications  .or appointments to. the Senate would  lead one to believe that itliey looked  upon it merely aa. a sanitarium for  played-out political, hacks. What the  Government should, do Is to select hardier, healthier and youn.er men with  brains and ballast to fill the vacancies.  — .oderich Signal.  Hear! Hear! Daniel! Every word you  say Is itrue. It; has come to this pass  that there are but two ways to get to  the Senate. One must be a millionaire  contractor, promoter or pill-maker, or  a worn-out and defeated member of  f_rllitment.

In a recent lecture. Dairy Instructor  p. Hog-gild, of Denmark, gave a practical hint ao the Danish veterinarians  which might be taken to heart by the  various milk commissioners and boards  of health when'they propose to instruct  the practical milk producers. He said  that there Is often occasion to emphasize that It may be necessary to distinguish between clearing and disinfecting. It must be conceded that the  Cleanliness with which we—for practical reasons—must be satisfied In our  preameries and stables In no way satisfies the strict demand of the hyglen-  lsm which must be applied in fighting  contagious diseases in a herd, but on  the other side it is- generally acknowledged that the best possible cleanliness  Is equally desirable on account of the  health of the cows and development of  their disease-resisting powers, as _ is  pf great-importance in securing of fine  ^nd uniform dairy products,  Ten or twenty years ago heat was  used In the fight against bacteria.

"All down the generations the green  and quiet country has been the nursery  of ppets, philosophers and statesmen.  It is there that men have room to grow  and time to think. There is comfort  and serenity in the cp^n sky, the wide  field, and the strip of bush, and a spacious leisure in the long slow days, and  solemn brooding nights. All there is of  divinity in man ripens under such conditions, and the elemental simplicity  and austerities of life breed in him high  resolves and large ambitions. If we  examine the rolls of the great public  schools and universities, we shall find  that very many of tha leaders in the  class-lists have come up from rural  homes, and were reared perhaps In  grevlous circumstances. So we shall  find it In the professions, In the  churches, in the parliaments, in great  commercial and flnanci-.il enterprises.  The roar and clamor of cities seem to  produce diffus tut and distraction.

For generations the  spirit of rural New England was the  moral force of the American Republic.  The rugged hills and bleak moors of  Scotland are the nursing mothers of  immortals.

Lime Is used for cleaning in nearly  all Danish creameries, not only for  woodenware, but also for tinware and  for scrubbing the floors. It took some  time to introduce It, as the buttermak-  ers to begin with had their hands affected by the lime, but when they once  (earned to use It they had no trouble,  and the use of steam, as well as of soda, has been reduced. Lime is now also  used more and more ln place of bll-  palnt, which Is often ruined by the  dampness or heat in the creameries,  apd as porcelain tiles are as a rule too  expensive, whereas lime is cheap and  easily applied. It Is often objected that  the lime will peel off, but the lecturer  did not deem that a drawback ln the  creameries or stables, because If was  io much easier to clean.

Thus the grand total cost of education for the year just  ended was J588.567.72. From this it will  be seen that the average cost of each  pupil for 'the year was 115.29. The Increase of expenditure for education for  last year, above that for the year  1900-1, was $53,304.98.  There were 23,902 pupils ln attendance  at the schools of the Province. There  are 335 schools In operation, with 570  teachers In charge. There were 17 new  schools opened during ,the year, and an  Increase of 27 teachers for these 17  schools.  There has been much controversy  over the season of Lent, and there Is  still much doubt as to the original  meaning of the term and what it meant  to the church. The word comes from  the Anglo-Saxon "lenoten," meaning  spring. In the Latin church It was  called Jejunlum quadragesimal, "the  fast of forty days." Roman Catholic  theologians and many Protestants  maintain that this fact Is, in substance,  of apostolic origin, but the greater  number of Protestants consider It >to be  of ecclesiastical origin. The common  opinion Is that It was established as a  preparation for the great anniversaries  of Christ's crucifixion and ressurrec-  tlon, and In remembrance of His fast  In the w'lderness for forty days. The  Latin term Quadragesima was applied  before (tic fourth century'to a period  of forty dayj before Eastern, set apart  for fasting and prayer. Gregory the  Great In 590, directed that the Qu.id-  ragoslmal feast should begin on the  sixth Sunday before Enster, and that  all the Intervening week days should be  fast days. As this, however, only gave  36 such days the last four of the preceding week were added either by that  Pope or by Gregory II. (715). the solemn  fast thus beginning on Ash Wednesday, which thenceforward was called  caput jejuunll, "the beginning of the  feast."  A clergyman was much surprised one  day at receiving a basket of potatoes  from an old woman In his parish, with  a message spying that as he had remarked ln his sermon on the previous  Sunday that some "common taters"  (commentators) did not agree with him,  ■he had sent him some real good ones.  Balllngton Booth has been telling his  friends about a woman who stood up  to test fy to her conversion In the days  when he waB with the Salvation Army.  She said: "I was very foolish and  vain. Worldly pleasures, and especially the fashions, were my only thought.  1 svas fond of silks, satins, jewelry, ilb-  boiis.und laces. But, my friends, I  found they were dragging me down to  perdition; so I gave them all to my  sister."  "Pa, who was Shylook?"  "Great goodness, boy!" You attend  church and Sunday school every week  and don't know who Shylock was?"  cried the father, with a look of surprise and horror. "Go and read your  Bible, sir!"  Lord Russell once asked Mr. Hume:  "Mr. Hume, what do you consider to  be the object of legislation?" "The  greatest good of the greatest number."  "And what .6 you consider the great-  eat number?"
